Nicki Minaj: “I Still Hate The Name…”
The female rapper talks about her alias…
Rapper Nicki Minajhas said in a recent interview that her name might be the next thing to go along with the other changes she’s made in the run up to her new album, Pink Friday.
Minaj claimed that she’d much rather go under her real name than use Nicki Minaj, because she doesn’t like it that much.
She told Trinidadian Newspaper, Newsday: “I was always called Nicki at home so I was known as Nicki Maraj but my first producer Fendi did not like Maraj and thought Minaj sounded better. I still hate the name and I was going to go back to Maraj on the album but people told me no because my fans like it.”
In other news, Nicki Minaj also wants to switch up her style to reflect her West Indian roots:
“I wanted a song that had a Trini sounding sound. So I went and Googled Machel Montano's ‘Congo Man’ and I wanted it to be like that but we were not able to get it done. We will get it though, that was a start.”
